Can Dixons be trusted to come up with the goods does anyone know?
#2
Not in my experience, but I'm sure other people will have had a good experience with them and convince you otherwise.

Nice to see another fool posting a non compatible product which also has no wireless A.
Do you post comparisons on other non compatible things like 3rd party joypads for other consoles that are a lot cheaper to ?.

This is a good deal
voted hot.


The effective overall range of 802.11a is less than that of 802.11b/g; and in theory 802.11a signals cannot penetrate as far as those for 802.11b because they are absorbed more readily by walls and other solid objects in their path due to their smaller wavelength. In practice 802.11b typically has a higher distance range at low speeds (802.11b will reduce speed to 5 Mbit/s or even 1 Mbit/s at low signal strengths). However, at higher speeds, 802.11a typically has the same or higher range due to less interference.

Functionality equivalent to the adapter's can be achieved with different third-party solutions, which are connected through the ethernet port and recognized by the Xbox 360 as a wired connection.

You should really find out what "wireless A" means before you post.

As you can see the mods have deleted the posts on what the original post was about, he posted a non compatible USB adapter which has nothing to do with this deal and which you have failed to even mention so stop trying to take this deal Off topic.

Go and find this cheaper or just don't post.

Voted hot best price I can see at the moment.

I went for a homeplug twin pack from Amazon over this. Same price!

way over priced, much cheaper ways of doing it...

ebay a cheap router thats compatable with DDWRT (here http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv3/dd-wrt/hardware.html)

Buy Bit, flas DD WRT on it, on and use client mode wireless
http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Client_Mode_Wireless

The router should cost you less than a tenner, DD WRT is free and have some spare ethernet ports in the room your xbox is in.

Edit: I did this this week for under £8 saved myself £30 on this deal, using buffalo WLA G54. Ive used wireless repeater bridge mode to extend my wireless network as well as have the wireless netrwork kicked out the othernet ports, on the same subnet.

Voted hot as its the cheapest I've seen. However I personally use Homeplugs as someone above mentions. Around 40 quid for a pair but solid as anything, no drop outs.

Yep homeplugs seem a much better option as they are not exclusively for use with a 360.

Thanks for this info. Can you recommend the router you used? I want the simplicity of the MS adapter, but I will not on principle pay that much money for it.

Even better idea, tape an episode of Gamer.tv and then watch it with a tv remote in your hand and pretend to be playing it, saves you a fortune and you always get to play the latest games!!!

Seriously, why do people constantly bash this device, mikeleeds, you clearly have a lot of network experience however, for the rest of us, your advice is bewildering (and I know a fair bit about technology!!). This device is fool proof, you plug it in and it works, sure there are cheaper ways but thats what you pay for convenience, same as buying diesel from garages instead of making your own and buying bacon from supermarkets instead of rearing your own pigs!

This is a great price for a great (if overpriced) piece of kit and contrary to what others have said it DOES NOT drop out all the time, mine has never done so and I've had it ages.

If you follow that tutorial you shouldnt have any problems, at the end of the day you just have to update the firmware on a router, and change some settings - I agree though, the DD WRT tutorial is a nightmare it makes it out to be much harder than it really is.

the names client mode wireless and flashing the router are just fancy terms, client mode just means grab wireless, output as wired through ports, and flashing the router is just changing the firmware in this case. If you've not already shelled out for one of these, I would suggest getting a really cheap 2nd hand router and trying the DD WRT method, your gambling <£10 to save £30 and as long as its compatable, and you are patient, the gamble should pay off. If not, then you still have a router and you can resell it or find another use for it!

Home plugs are much better than wireless. Especially for gaming.
#15
Whilst everyone is arguing about the conversion of signals to wireless forms, the item in question is actually about getting that wireless form back to a state that can be read by the xbox!

I am currently in the states and this wireless receiver for the xbox is well expensive (over 100 dollars). Seeing that u guys mentioned this homeplug device my question is; can u just use an ethernet cable to connect the xbox to the extender homeplug device? ... or does it just transmit in wireless!? If the latter, how do u guys suggest the xbox can connect for cheaper? Any help will be much appreciated.:thumbsup:

So you don't have to have any cable connection with those plugs just like this adapter then? I didn't release that . :whistling:

Yes connect xbox by ethernet to homeplug and the the other homeplug by ethernet to your router. That's how mine is set up.
If you have a wireless network and laptop there are guides on youtube on how to connect via an ethernet cable to latop but I didnt manage to get that to work.

If you think connecting your xbox to the internet via home plug is a better option....good for you.
If you think If you think connecting your xbox to the internet via home plug costs the same as the wireless adaptor...good for you.

This, however is a cheap deal for the official XBOX 360 adaptor.

I'll be honest with you here at home I have 2 wall plug adaptors which are constantly being used but the wireless adaptor is a wire-free option which isn't much of a hassle.

Probably best to Google for the homeplug info, if you have a 360 the current wireless adapter is very likly to drop in price by a big margin in the coming weeks as the new Twin Ariel Wireless "N" (802.11N Wi-Fi ) adapter is going to be released on the 360...
